lyrics

Sakonnet

When the days were strings of Sundays
holding hands like paper dolls
I lived in my doll's house
but I wanted out
so I went looking for a job

I went to Sakonnet at harvest time
there was something there about the light
or the air infused with wine
& the grapes set as jewels upon the vine
upon the vine there

Simple work for idle hands, he said
So what?
Just let the sun set alone in it's September sky, babe,
you think you'll make enough money to get by?

Reeds 'round the lake the wind would make
sure to rub, then not quite touch
reeds 'round the lake the wind would make
only circumstantial if our paths ever cross

Shot my lover's arrow
where it fell nobody knew
they all said that I still loved you
& they said I'd leave Sakonnet
but it's been two years
& I'm still here
where the reeds grow & the sun
sets alone

There's something there about the light
or the air infused with wine
makes a perfume on my hands
so when I brush the dark hair from my eyes
